Thanks to Nine Inch Nails, David Lynch is heading back behind the camera. No, he won’t be directing a feature film (we haven’t given up hope though), but rather a music video for the band’s new single “Came Back Haunted,” which hit the airwaves earlier this month. Trent Reznor tweeted a random photo of him and the filmmaker, and sources have confirmed that the two are definitely working together.
Pitchfork reported that Reznor recruited Lynch to direct the music video for the band’s comeback single. NIN has yet to confirm the news, but based on the photo that Reznor shared via Twitter (see below), and the fact that the two have worked together in the past, this information rings true. (The two previously worked on Lynch’s 1997 film, Lost Highway.)
Reznor has described himself as a huge Lynch fan, telling Rolling Stone in 1997 that NIN “used to hold up [their] shows so [they] could watch the latest Twin Peaks.” He said that working with Lynch was intense at first, but later he discovered that he was cooler than he imagined.
This sounds like excellent news, and we can’t wait to see what the two come up with. Feel free to listen to “Came Back Haunted” at SoundCloud.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to the music video?
